Looking to broaden the reach of high performance .NET applications across multiple clustered tiers and platforms, as well as promote the use of Windows Communications Foundation (WCF), Microsoft this week will release a sample application, tutorials and benchmarks to help simplify the development and deployment of service-oriented architecture (SOA) composite apps.
Microsoft's .NET StockTrader 2.0 with Configuration Service 2.0 will providean early -- though narrow -- glimpse of the work coming out of the company's Oslo initiative, Redmond's next-generation model-driven SOA platform. Officials were quick to warn that Configuration Service 2.0 is not a community technology preview of Oslo, but did say that work from it could find its way into the eventual CTP.
"This particular set of code will help shape what we see in Oslo," said Greg Leake, director of technical marketing in Microsoft's connected systems division. "It goes to the heart of how we think about our SOA infrastructure going forward."
